You clot...
Since my flight back to Blighty two weeks ago I've had cramp in one of my calf muscles. And the calf's been a bit swollen. Well I thought it was cramp. I called by doctor about it on Friday. He sent me straight to A&E to have it checked out. The symptoms suggested DVT. The duty doctor thought it was only either minor clotting (it's the big clots you need to worry about apparently) or even an exploded (!) vein. Neither of which was worth a ultrasound scan. So I'm left a little bit in the dark. Is it DVT or isn't it? Needless to say I've been popping pills ever since (aspirin, Nurofen etc.) . Eeeeks!
